The event will include a cargo bike race, raffle and free BBQ lunch, as well as a group test ride on the streets of Gowanus.

“There is no denying that cargo bikes have become a viable and affordable means of transport, exploding in growth, as NYC becomes safer and safer for cyclists,” says Joe Nocella, who owns 718 Cyclery and says his shop is the biggest seller of cargo bikes in New York City.

Cargo bikes from Xtracycle, Yuba, Urban Arrow, Surly, Bakfiets, Kona, and Bike Friday will be available to demo at this event.

This event and the food are free. You can also buy $10 raffle tickets for a chance to win a new 2015 Yuba Mundo. Proceeds from the raffle benefit Transportation Alternatives.
